Living with Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA)

Can broken bones trigger PsA


There's not much mileage in the question 'WHY?' seeing as what's done is done. But this article is interesting nonetheless. I'd never had a broken bone (other than a broken nose, which does not involve a joint) till I had a fairly heavy duty bunionectomy, which I guess is the same as a broken bone as far as the body's systems are concerned. And full-on PsA followed on from that within a year.



Thank you doctors for finally confirming my personal journey. I have had a rib dislocate when in was about 12-13 yrs old. It has been my nemis through out life locking up and causing pain. This led to PSA when a year ago it just never got better even after being repositioned. I had honestly thought I was on my way to back surgery finally to end this until the diagnosis. It is still my main complaint about 60% of the time. This is very good news for us to know! Thanks for sharing!
